Video Editing a published event does not retract what had been published before

Steps to reproduce

Click the View (edit) button for a published Event.
Select the Editor
Choose Workflow Edit and Publish

Actual Results:

Event ends up with two publications in the same channel

Expected Results:

The old publication is replaced.

Workaround (if any):

Apply the Retract Action/Task first

Too be honest I don't think editing events in this way is a particularly good idea.

1. It relies on preview media being previously archived.
2. The workflow is a partial and there is no UI to config which channels you want to publish to.

We have one piece of the puzzle: A WOH that can import workflow properties from an archived Java properties file. The missing piece would be a WOH that exports workflow properties to such a Java properties file...

Lukas tells me that the concept of holding a workflow eg for interactive editing has been dropped, so this is the official way trim/review recordings. The only workaround I can see it to hardcode the publishing channels you need into a workflow partial for the editor, which is not great.

Either we need to trim/hold in the old way or have a config modal. I'd prefer the former as you should not assume that the person doing the trimming has any knowledge of how the recording should be further processed.

Hi James,

just a quick comment on your point number two. The reason for the missing configuration panel is money/resources, and it is obvious that once the processing instructions to continue after cutting have been selected, there needs to be the ability to configure the workflow. Again, this is currently missing for cost reasons, and costs are involved since we thought it would take careful UX design to come up with a modal inside of the tools section which then closes the tool...
